Former Atlanta Braves in the 2008 Post Season

Good picture gallery of ex-Braves playing in the post season this year by the AJC today.

The list includes eleven (11) players...

  • Greg Maddux
  • Jason Marquis
  • Paul Byrd
  • Rafael Furcal
  • Mark DeRosa
  • J.D. Drew
  • Mark Kotsay
  • Jermaine Dye
  • Dewayne Wise
  • Willy Aybar
  • Mark Teixeira

Who would I want back? Teixeira. But it would have taken a lot more than Tex to get the Bravos in the post season this year.

"They're back."

And they are. Consider this a warning -- to you and the rest of the National League East. They're back.

It's been 2½ years since the Braves last played a postseason game. It's been 13 years since they won the only World Series of their 14-year rampage as division champions. It's been 17 years since the Braves of John Smoltz, Tom Glavine, Steve Avery and Charlie Leibrandt made their first foray into October in the Bobby Cox-John Schuerholz era.
